You have absolutely no shot at CCN. Retake.

Off the top of my head:
1. Bad except maybe Cornell.
2. Very, very good. No need to ED.
3. Yes.

No chance at CCNPMVB. Decent shot at DNCG if you kill your application.

soj, that's actually very motivating. Thanks. :)

You link to law school numbers — I know of it, but I posted here because I didn't know a way of filtering multiple LSAT/Early Decision applicants on the site. Is there such a filter?

Use the search function to find all the profiles with approximately your numbers, look through them, and draw your own conclusions. Many users indicate on their profiles whether they retook or applied ED.

Definitely retake. I was in the exact same boat: 3.75, 175 PT average, 168 on my first real test. Retook and got 177. In at H and all of CCN. Since it sounds like you have good awareness of what went wrong you should kill it on the second go round.

If you are open to it the answer is ALWAYS retake (assuming sufficient preparation). It costs you less than $200 bucks and ultimately can be the difference between guaranteed job and sweating out OCI. Or alternatively it can be worth in your case more than a hundred grand in scholarship money.
